His Eminence Sarki Zango Suspends Two Major Islamic Festivities This Year Too

Sarkin Zango suspends Gangara and Eidul-Fitr due to Covid-19 to help curb the spread of the virus as directed by the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo

His eminence, Sarkin Zango of Ashanti Region, Sultan Umar Farouk Saeed, has announced they will not be any Eid activities in Zango during the 2021 Eidul-Fitr Celebration.

Gangara, a cultural activity observed by Muslims to signify the end of Ramadan (30-day fasting), will be conspicuously missing for the second time since Ghana’s independence.

Sarki noted, this was decided to protect the public amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is to help prevent people from contracting the virus and also avoid any unnecessary risks as the president directed.

According to him, the believer's intention towards the celebration is necessary, further advising all Muslims to adhere to the notice and stay protected as the government battles the Covid-19.

Covid-19 is real and still infecting people. Don't use religion as an excuse to break the covid-19 rules or protocols
